15 Prospect St., Southampton
Main Prospect is great for dinner and drinks, sure. But we love it as a gathering spot for Sunday brunch, Friday trivia, and Saturday evening jazz nights. (It’s also bookable for weddings and other large events.)
The Lobster Roll
32 Montauk Hwy., Southampton
Given the huge “LUNCH” sign hanging over the doorway, you couldn’t miss the Lobster Roll’s new Southampton spot (as casual and welcoming as its Amagansett outpost) even if you tried. The lobster rolls here are excellent, whether you go Connecticut or Maine style.
54 Hampton Rd., Southampton
Wishbone Farms is the gourmet food store we all wish for in our neighborhoods. The weekend boxes (filled with all the bites and sauces you need to rustle up a barbecue or breakfast spread at home) are a great fix if you have guests coming over. Self-described as a “market-to-fridge” concept, their little in-store café is packed with restaurant-quality prepared foods, baked goods, and excellent iced coffees. Images courtesy of Sean Zanni.

9 Main St., Southampton
Hauser & Wirth’s long-anticipated Southampton space is here under the direction of Marc Payot. Images courtesy of Hauser & Wirth, Georgo Condo, Henry Taylor, and Genevieve Hanson.
38 Jobs Ln., Southampton
Fivestory’s cavernous Madison Avenue space offers the kind of boutique shopping experience that’s historically unique to NYC; deeply curated, customer-centric, and cutting edge. New owner Karen Murray has expanded the store’s reach and opened a Southampton pop-up on Job’s Lane. Expect an expansive designer line-up of casual, beachy items and swimwear, personal shopping, beautiful vintage pieces, and a breezy, nautical-themed interior.
30 Main St., Southampton
Breakfast at Sant Ambroeus on Saturday mornings is, for many Upper East Siders and West Villagers, a standing order. When those same crowds descend on the Hamptons for the summer, not much changes.
Latch Pop Up Inn (Closed)
101 Hill St., Southampton
There’s a rich history behind the grounds and building of this temporary hotel: It formerly housed the Village Latch Inn and the Grand Annex to the Southampton Irving Hotel in the early 1900s. The cabanas and rooms are newly refurbished in a clean grey-and-white palette. Set on five acres with an expansive yard, it is a relaxing, no-frills place to stay within walking distance of Southampton’s shops and restaurants.
53C Jobs Ln., Southampton
With its easy, summertime pieces (think: swimwear, cover-ups, and wraps) and comfortable, romantic lingerie, it was only a matter of time before this lifestyle brand made its way to the Hamptons. The pop-up shop carries the complete collection, including its mini line for children, for which we may be the most excited about.
Tracy Anderson at The Golden Pear Café
99 Main St., Southampton
Anything Tracy Anderson does, we jump on the bandwagon. Our go-to trainer has drastically improved our lives and our health–so naturally we're excited about her latest collaboration with Golden Pear Cafe. This summer, she's curated a menu of smoothies available at all four cafe locations, including Southampton, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, and Bridgehampton. Organic, gluten and fructose-free, each blend is mixed with her patented protein powder, ideal for pre/post workout nutrition and detoxing.
Copious Row Beach
28C Jobs Ln., Southampton
A staple for women's accessories, fine jewelry and ready-to-wear in Greenwich, CT, Copious Row brings its well-curated mix to Southampton with its second location, Copious Row Beach. With interiors exuding a modern beach vibe, the boutique features pieces by varied designers such as Lisa Marie Fernandez, Sonia Rykiel, and Rosetta Getty.
